    Don't know why we'd need spoilers for this game but the added motorcycles should be pretty fun. I loved Double Dash so I was sad to see the Wii version go "back to the basics" but this title should definitely be great.

    It kinda does need spoilers. As those would apparently be one of the tracks in the new Mario Kart.

    peach on a motorbike? neat. one gripe. the backgrounds look like they were ripped from the ds

    and, no, spoilers aren't really necessary. there's no story or plot to mariokart. what's the point in posting the pictures if you don't want them looked at?

    Ripped from the DS? I don't think so. Many Nintendo systems used these game graphics. Dating back to the N64's Mario Kart 64.

    Which they just improved from there.

    I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say here (rarely am I), but I don't want my current-generation titles to at all graphically resemble titles from two generations ago or from a current handheld. It's not usually a good sign. And while I'm sure they'll clean up somewhat before it releases in the spring, these screenshots are underwhelming at the very least.

    The idea of using motorcycles is pretty freaking cool, there's also going to be an ice level with a half pipe

    Motorcycles? NICE.

    Luigi's got a pretty pimp ride in one of those pictures.

    Motorcycles?

    If they can add ROB in the DS one, and this has bikes? They have to have Excitebike as a unlockable. I'm already buying this thing, but that would make me so friggin happy.

    The motorcycles kind of remind me of those Mario Excitebike games for the Satellaview (the Japanese only add-on to the Super Famicom/Nintendo).

    So all the Kart riders in the game have their own specific vehicle? :confused:

    Luigi drives a funny car? :confused:

    Either way, this looks awesome. Can't wait for it to come out. :)

    Here's the trailer from the Nintendo Fall Press Conference

    Mario Kart Wii

    Actually though, not every racer has their specific car. It's gonna be like where in GC you choose your character then your kart. Because in the video, Mario was using either the car or the motorcycle.

    Awesome, you can finally do air stunts! That's a logical progression that I'm surprised took this long to implement.

    I wonder if Wario would have the Wario Chopper from WarioWare.

    I actually think this game doesn't look that much different from Double Dash, DD was very pretty but this game just feels like a Gamecube DD sequel with single carts. Thats another con I have about it.


    by the way this is also not the first time the Mario gang has been in Motorcycles, besides Wario using one in WarioWare the Mario gang also used it in the satellaview superfamicom game BS Excitebike Bun Bun Mario Battle Stadium. So I'm kind of expecting the game to control something like Excitebike :D

    Well sdo, whether you like it or not. It's really "NOT" a rehash of DD. Nintendo's finding new courses and features.

    Do you think you could go online with DD and challenge gamers from other states (or countries)? No, but with the Wii you can.

    You can do tricks now? Sweet, as long as it's implemented well.

    Kart design seems to be pretty good. It's at least better than MKDS in that regard. I can't wait to try out the motorcycles.
